Thanks for your interest in Feisol tripods from Really Big Cameras.

All three standard series models are load rated for 9kg (19.8lbs.) compared to the Bogen/Manfrotto 3221's load rating of 6kg (13.2lbs.).

The differences in the Feisol Standard Class models concern the number of leg sections (3 - for the CT-3301 and 4 for the CT3401 and CT-3402) maximum height (the CT-3301 is the tallest and the CT-3402 the shortest - unless you add the optional two-section center column) and folded length (CT-3301 is longest, CT3402 is shortest).

In terms of duplicating, or slightly improving, the specifications of your Bogen/Manfrotto, the CT-3301 with the optional center column, is the most similar. It's slightly taller and has a very similar folded length.

Of course, the big difference is that it's 40% lighter (3 lbs. with the optional center column compared to 5 lbs. for the Bogen/Manfrotto).
